A smile design consists of a 4-stage treatment.
Stage 1: Smile Analysis Stage
2: Digital Smile Design Stage
3: Aesthetic Test Stage
4: Final Restorations
Stage 1: Smile Analysis
In this stage, a series of digital photographs of the patient's face and smile are taken.
Then the computer analyzes the details that could make the smile more harmonious to your face and thus obtain a more aesthetic result.
Stage 2: Digital Smile Design
Once we have seen the details that can be improved, we proceed to make the improvements digitally until we achieve the desired result.
Stage 3: Aesthetic Test
This is the most important stage of the treatment, since we will place the designed restorations in the patient's mouth.
These are temporary restorations that are done without cutting or remodeling the patient's mouth at all. This is done as it is completely reversible and if the patient decides not to get treatment. Nothing has happened.
The patient can take these restorations and use them for a couple of days to see how he feels and what impression he has on his relatives.
In this image you can see the real state of the patient in the upper part, then a remodeling with wax in the plaster model that is made based on the design made in the previous stage and finally you can see the temporary restorations that the patient Take to see if they are to your liking.
Stage 4: Final Restorations
If the temporary restorations are approved, then we begin the definitive work in the patient's mouth, performing the porcelain or resin restorations as necessary.
In this last image you can see all the stages together.
